Vancouver, BC (January 10, 2012) – Deepak Chopra, M.D. today announced the launch of the world’s first Chopra Yoga Center in Vancouver, Canada. The custom-designed 8,000-square-foot wellness studio is the first in a planned series of yoga centers that will be rooted in foundational teachings developed by mind-body healing pioneers Deepak Chopra, M.D. and David Simon, M.D.“We’re excited to bring Chopra Yoga to Vancouver, a city that is emerging as a world class center for yoga,” said Dr. Chopra. “In our beautiful new studios, both beginners and advanced yogis will have an opportunity to explore the deepest principles of yoga and conscious living.”
The Chopra Yoga Center offers a wide variety of classes that range from meditation, hot hatha, and power vinyasa to Cho fit, Yoga Barre, and Pilates. There are also classes that focus specifically on the Seven Spiritual Laws of Yoga – a practice developed by Dr. Chopra and Dr. Simon. The studio’s philosophy is inspired by the principles in Dr. Chopra’s best-selling book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success and emphasizes the benefits of yoga for physical health, spiritual awakening, and inner calm and balance.
“In our modern electronic culture, so many people feel fragmented and overwhelmed with stress,” said Dr. Simon. “Our intention with Chopra Yoga is to help as many people as possible experience the balance, calm, and vitality that yoga naturally cultivates.”
The Chopra Yoga Center, located at 451 Granville Street, in Vancouver B.C., is now accepting new members. The programs are designed for both new and experienced yoga practitioners. Recognizing the importance of community, five per cent of all profits are donated to local charities. For more information, please visit www.choprayoga.com
